Gun of the day

Heading off to replace a proportioning valve.
What better company than my trusty Ruger LC9.
Yeah, it is all Californized with the manual safety, “loaded when up” flag.
It does sport a techa-clip for pocket carry.

The trigger is longer than War and Peace.
I still love this gun.
The magazine disconnect was lost in a canoe accident in the Arctic.
Loaded with Golden Sabre Black Belt HP’s.
Reload is a second gun;
Backup is the little brother; LCP 2.

Funny you post a lc9. Coworker asked if I could cleanup her ruger she likes to run cross country and this is her carry when running. While she takes care of herself, her maintenance of the ruger was less than stellar.

Guilty as well.
My LC9 has a few scrapes.
The hazard of carry.
I don’t have any rust though.
I can see how it would happen very quickly with sweat.
My scrapes are on the left side of the front of the slide.
Probably from the copper rivets on my pants pocket since i often carry this pistol in an empty front right pocket with only the techna-clip.
It is the only pistol I carry this way.
Even my LCP 2 lives in a kydex pocket holster.
The LC9 just fits perfectly in a pocket on the techna-clip.
You can sit in a truck, hike, get in and out of an ATV, ride a motocycle.
Well, at least she carries.
Even if the pistol gets a little cosmetic damage.
I will warn against letting the inside of the action get too dry, particularly the feed ramp on the barrel.
The only problems I ever have with my LCP 2 and LC9 I believe were after letting them get too dry.

Good info on getting dry in the action I’ll pass that on to her. Was one of her complaints was the action was so stiff. Spent about 5 hours cleaning it up for her and the thing works very well now. Action much improved I can confirm. All the rust I removed with oil and 0000 steel wool, rust was all on the outside of the slide. She just needed to wipe it off when done with an oily rag.

Oh my…
Now i see how my choice of words is sometimes… bad.

I meant, dab a few drops of Hoppes on a q-tip and swab the throat of the feed ramp…

Ugh…
Uh. Yeah.
